KATE SCHROCK's Refuge is the self produced album by Kate Schrock on her own Kakelane Music label. Haunting vocals and compelling lyrics that pulse with the push pull force of love and estrangement, clarity and obscurity, weave through her original piano based acoustic compositions. In a recent piece in Face Magazine, Portland's music and culture bi-weekly, the author had this to say, "Refuge is a moody, acoustic record with the atmospheric overtones of Joni Mitchell's Blue. Like Blue, Refuge puts vocals front and center, supported by sparse accompaniment. Schrock's strong voice takes on a sort of...bluesy, Rickie Lee Jones feel while her piano lends a graceful accent." In a recent interview Kate comments that for her, "Music is the marriage of soul and technique, of philosophy and theater." Kate counts opening for Stephen Stills, The Bodeans and Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones as some of the highlights of recent months. In addition to playing New England's premier clubs and enjoying airplay up and down the East Coast, Kate has treated eager listeners to her powerful brand of singing and song writing at well known venues From New York to San Francisco . Kate released Shunyata in 1997, also on her own Kakelane Music label. This second album has been growing in popularity via the audiophile world and the internet.
